If you have a blender and a saucepan (oh yes, and a freezer), you have all the equipment you need to make this fruity, sweet sorbet.



  • 1 pound pears, such as Bartlett, peeled, cored, and sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)

  • 1 cup water

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 – 2 tablespoon candied ginger, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • In a saucepan combine pears, 1 cup water, the sugar, honey, ginger, and lemon juice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until pears are soft and begin to break apart. Remove from heat; let cool. (You will have about 21/4 cups pears and liquid.)

    Transfer to a blender; blend until smooth. Freeze in an airtight container overnight or until firm.
